Il n'y a pas beaucoup de franšais sur ce forum, je suis donc ravi d'en croiser un.
(There aren't many French people on this forum so I am happy to come across one.)
I will keep it in English, otherwise moderators will break a sweat. I would be happy if sub-forums in other languages (Spanish /French /German) could be added.
I know it would need moderating resources and my idea was already rejected some time ago. But frankly I don't see many quality motoring websites around and I think Edmunds has everything needed to expand franchises in other areas/languages.
I have a 1978 Ami 8 Hatchback / Station wagon.
You have very well kept version of VW Scirocco. I like the 1976 model which lokks like pretty rust free

Mine also looks a little better in photos than in real life, the photogenic period color helps - but it is a good old car, reliable and not bad to drive. Mine is also the fuel injected model, so that helps.

the one i looked at was actually diesel, but not sure if its a period diesel engine or a later lump..
the french love their diesels

The Peugeots turbo diesel hatchbacks are sweet little cars. i'd love to have one over here. Americans have never experienced anything quite like them.

I have seen gas fintails with diesel engines...I don't understand why, a diesel fintail is a very slow car.
